The Pentacles is just one of the four suits in a Tarot deck, correlated with the tangible features and concerns. Because the Suit of Pentacles is represented by the element Earth, a stronger emphasis is placed on the soundness and dependability of items in your existence. The Earth is seen as a stable factor and a source for growth and prosperity from which positive or negative effects could occur.

Typically, Pentacles are called "Coins.' They have been generalized to represent monetary or opulent things, but they can mean so much more! Often forgotten, Pentacles can be a reminder of your responsibilities, resilience, and success in both your career and life. Success in everyday things is a trait interpreted by the Pentacles. It might be hinting that there is some physical demand in your life that may need more attention. Whether it's a raise from your boss or a debt collector who has come knocking, a “Coin” is indicating that there is energy that needs to flow in a specific direction.

The Suit of Pentacles has 14 cards. Each of these cards relates to a different material feature of your life. Read through the descriptions so you can better understand the significance of the Suit of Pentacles, or "Coins."

Ace of Coins Tarot Card Meaning

The Ace of Coins represents health and grounding. It reveals how appropriately you handle the tangible features in your life, whether it is your home life or possessions. The Ace may also indicate the ability to build whatever is necessary from the materials you have at your fingertips.

A reversed Ace depicts a loss or a degree of recklessness. You are hanging on too firmly to belongings and perceiving society from a lacking mindset.

Two of Coins Tarot Card Meaning

A Two of Coins indicates that there is a lot on your hands that you have to balance out. The infinity sign represents the juggling of earthly matters as an infinite process and you have to just keep moving forward. This might be a turbulent ride, so balancing work and play will be a major hurdle.

A reversed Two indicates a feeling of being overburdened or that you made a mistake. Might you be showing the world a perfect picture, but behind the glass it is fractured?

Three of Coins Tarot Card Meaning

The Three of Coins symbolizes collaborating to produce a meaningful product. It characterizes exceptional communication while taking into account multiple viewpoints. You are committed to following a strategy and can empathize well with other people.

The reversed Three suggest that the plans are not coming together and there is very little communication. You simply may not have the skills needed to proceed with the task at hand.

Four of Coins Tarot Card Meaning

A Four of Coins means security, playing it safe, and having organized finances, sometimes even a little obsessively. You are constantly aware of the worries surrounding your well-being and feel better knowing that everyone close to you, and yourself, are secure. 

A reversed Four advises that you do not play it safe. If you have the ability to contribute your attention and financials, you should. Take a chance to get out of your comfort zone.

Five of Coins Tarot Card Meaning

The Five of Coins represents distress about finances along with the feeling of anxiety. There might be a concern with the ability to make it through a challenging situation. Are you caring for someone who is dependent upon you or are you depending on someone else?

A reversed Five indicates that a situation that has had your mind preoccupied for a long time is or will be released. An end or a solution to a problem is closer than you think.

Receiving the Queen of Pentacles shows great connection to all that surrounds you.
